Basement Organizing Checklist

Create a safe and uncluttered storage space in your basement by following these easy steps.

  • Assess the clutter. Start by creating three categories: keep, donate, and toss. As you work your way through the items in the basement, assign each one to a category. If you rarely use a piece, it’s probably a good candidate to donate or toss.
  • Donate or toss. Contact local charities and arrange for a pickup of items to donate; put the toss items out with the trash or recycling.
  • Edit the belongings you’re keeping. Separate the keep pile into new categories, such as books, sporting goods, etc. Assign each category a location: Books should be stowed in a plastic storage box placed on a high shelf (or in a corner of the attic); sporting equipment might be sent to a bin in the garage.
